and have an extension doing what you suggest, a reform of a tax code. president obama mentioned in the speech expressing he won the presidency that tax reform is something he is looking to do. >>neil: you mentioned the president and he will be off to thailand later this month in the middle of all of this which might be fine, a beautiful country. shouldn't it be all heads on deck? all ships in the harbor? >>guest: you would think so. this is a serious matter, something needs to be done and the question is, will they do what they did in the budget control act and say, we will do a temporary deal and extend things for six months to a year and have some sort of committee come together and try to come to a big agreement. that is uncertain. some people on the democratic side that harry reid expressed he wants something done in the next if months. will they agree? will those in the house, republicans especially, agree to raising taxes? that is uncertain. >>neil: what is certain is they are in no rub. we will have to watch this closely and cue up soon our neil cavuto super hero thing be

and that would be romney or it will be close and it could be obama, but if it is close we will be here for days. >>neil: wait, wait, wait, wait, my world record when you say days, my world record for being on the hair is 11 hours straight. >>pat: there is a good chance. because you just need to be ready. >>neil: thank you very much. pat president i will be there suffering with you. >>neil: i love that. >>pat: just like iowa. >>neil: you are so smart it is scary. panic is setting in as the power outages keep the gas stations closed. this gas line look how far it stretched -- into california! not really but it is bad. go on the road and look at this all these people are looking if gas. you know more than a couple of vehicles have just a quarter tank or less, right if not good. not good. that often leads to hoarding. some relief could be on the way. now, pat, what do you see happening? >>pat: well, it is like we have cabin fever. folks want to get out and survey the damage. what do they need? gasoline, yes, some need it for generators and some need to drive around and maybe their employers are mak
a couple of days ago, we are on it, we got it? we have a big obama supporter, what do you think? >>guest: we are in the midst of a tragedy, an unprecedented moment. this is in shortage of gasoline. there is a shortage of power. i live in part of manhattan where we have power and millions of people live a few blocks south of me and have no power. if this was a katrina-like response where there was a visible tragedy and you did not see a governor with his hands on the switch as you saw in governor christie or governor cuomo, a president who has brought every fema resource. >>neil: but you saw in staten island it is not reaching there. i agree, it is different great katrina but if the argument is they are bragging about what they doing, but this woman is saying, no, no, it is not. we are not seeing it. >>guest: the five boroughs of new york is peculiar circumstance. i don't disagree with the woman we have been imbalanced here in new york relative to the four boroughs other than manhattan where i live. but, this isn't a macro political event. some of the local people will be called out as to
hope my friends at fox are sit down when they hear this, it could be a shock, president obama didn't invent trillion dollar deficits he inherited them. >>neil: i hope this doesn't come as a shock as my friend the illinois senator we are now knee-deep in trillions of dollars of more deficits. and larry sabato with simple advice, stop blaming and start fixing. you are saying both parties are to blame but the attack on fox notwithstanding, i am wondering, are democrats overplaying their hand? >>guest: they will have everplayed it if in the end it results in another deadlock and the same is true for republicans. we are at a special moment when we do have an opportunity to solve a lot of big problems simultaneously from the debt to entitlement growth, to the tax reform issue, tax loopholes there are a lot of things that could go into this and this is a very different situation from august of 2011 when we had the big deadlock of the debt ceiling. this after an election. if we can't solve the problems now, when are we going to solve them? >>neil: i am not encouraged by the smoke signals.

. this whole victory tour that president obama took a couple of days ago was exaggerated. >> 2.7 million customers were without power after the storm and now it is less than a million customers, a big improvement but not to the less than million customers who do not have power. >>neil: fema even closed disaster relief centers in new york because of bad weather. this time, hung up at a center in stalin island infuriating victims who say they are hung out to dry. storm victims are looking to fema for answers but they are not getting answers. >> we have yet to get a number for the people and that is what the previous question was about, how many people are we talking about you have settled in various housing? >> i will have to get you that. i don't have that in front of me. >> my experience is there must be a lot of miscommunication going on between state, local, and federal officials. >>neil: these are pictures my next guest took after hurricane sandy took about everything in hour life, her staten island home, furniture, clothes and now she has been kicked out of a hotel so family workers
